Fraidy Fert is an Item that can be found within common locations, including choice enemy Camps, given by Spouses, and rarely as a reward from Seasonal Festivals. Upon being picked up, whenever the player takes damage they will receive around 30 free Fertilizer.
Compared to other means of gaining Fertilizer, Fraidy Fert is among the fastest, due to having an immediate effect. In addition, it does not rely on other Items or a cooldown in the case of the Motivator or Wood Chipper Tractor. This can make Fraidy Fert superior to those Items in that regard. This can be further enhanced with damage-incentivizing items like Hotwire. However, because of how this Item only functions upon taking damage the player will have to weigh losing health intentionally against its benefits. Should the player not have much health to spare they may not desire to utilize this Item. This can make it especially less helpful as Thyme, and even more so with Items that terminate when taking damage like Hamsters and Irrigating Moles. Furthermore, Fraidy Fert yields a relatively low amount of Fertilizer per each unit of damage taken. Because of this, Fraidy Fert may be best seen as a benefit for accidently taking damage.
The following is a list of possible Items that can affect Fraidy Fert:
- Beet Drop (Item)
